Heat can cause a big problem in amplifiers, power supplies and in fact all electronic devices.

Heat can be caused by and cause drift on tolerances, component behaviour and complete failure as well as sound difference on solid state amplifiers.

We now use thermal imaging to show us component temperatures speeding up amplifier repair and ensuring that we get right to the root cause of the issue!

The above picture is a failing MOSFET that has broken down, the annoying thing is that it was still electrically working correctly but only with the use of a thermal imager you can see how it is much warmer than the black outlines of the other devices operating correctly.


This fascinating image shows a fender blues junior behind with the valves glowing brightly at a warm 195 degrees C! now you know to let your amp cool down a bit before moving it! 

Using a thermal camera we can find faults including bad storage capacitors, transformer winding issues, semiconductor issues, and lots more! we also like to take random pictures of workshop items……such as the soldering iron! 

We are Open

Repairs currently are running on time for parts we keep in stock.

Some of our distributors are closed adding to a slight delay.

Tracing & Control

To allow tracing of all people we come into contact with it is paramount to use the booking system. This is found under "ARRANGE REPAIR"

Minimising Contact

We have distancing measures at the workshop and is clearly explained when you arrive.

Payment

All payments after repair are to be made ideally online using our Worldpay link system, or Cash but please bring the right amount as we have limited change
